Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular application that is employed to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of corporations that create paid script applications, so in case you acquire such an app for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your program code and make sure that your website visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer often perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed more quickly.
Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is present on our in-house built cloud platform and you can use it whatever the website hosting
package that you select. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the accounts and it will take you just a couple of clicks to do this. Since we support numerous versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll need to activate Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you have not used yet. This is quite simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click software instrument, therefore you don't need any programming skills or previous expertise. Our hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application that needs Zend Optimizer without any troubles, but in case you're not sure what to do, you'll be able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they will activate the tool for you.
